Stand in the wheelhouse at the ship’s mighty wheel. Gaze into the cold Yukon River and imagine the chug of the steam-powered engines, the splashing of the powerful paddlewheel and the blast of the steam whistle. You’ll feel the romance and adventure of a bygone era when the river was the territory’s highway and life-line for First Nations, Gold Rush explorers, and growing Yukon communities.
